That way, again, the script is in charge, but now it has the information required to poke the child john process to make it list what is happening. I think you are right, that the ROI is not great, not too many people will use this type of logic. HOWEVER, having an acceptable procedure to make it work would be helpful Even within the script, you would not 'have' to pass over the session name to the instance of john being run, BUT simply be provided with the session name. So something like: ./databuild.pl run3 | ./john -pipe -rules=whatever input.txt -ses=run3 Now, databuild.pl would be able to contact the running session of john, using the session name, and trigger a status output from the process. --- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. https://www.avast.com/antivirus
